Slice it Dice help me digest long, nonfiction books and articles

I'm looking for an app like serial reader that will take the article or epub of my choosing and email it to me to read, one ten-minute chunk at a time.

So Serial Reader has a bunch of free books, and it will email you a short chunk that can be read in ten to fifteen minutes. I have a vague recollection of a perl script that would do the same thing, but with the file of one's choosing. I'm wondering if there is an app or web service for this. I realize, of course, that the best solution is to try to reclaim my attention span. Android or IOS or the web will work. I will probably have to just work through Automate the Boring Stuff with Python and write my own.

I was hoping you'd get more answers, because I was looking for the same thing a couple of years ago. FWIW, I resolved to make my own in the end. (And of course, I didn't.)

But if it helps you in any way, the website DailyLit operates on the same principle.
